WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor

The latest version of Bartender (4.6.0) is fully compatible with WoW 6.0 and Warlords of Draenor!

    • Stance Bar
    • Pet Bar
    • Bag Bar
    • Micro Menu
    • XP/Reputation Bar

    • Page all bars based on Stance or Modifier
    • Possess Bar support

  • Masque/ButtonFacade support!
  • Easy Hotkey Binding using KeyBound
  • Options to control the hiding of the default blizzard artwork (you might still want that to be displayed..)


Q: How do i access the Configuration?
A: You can open the configuration with the Slash Commands (/bt or /bartender) or through the Bartender4 LDB plugin.

Q: Can Bartender4 import settings from Bartender3?
A: No. Those two mods are too different to be able to import settings.

Q: Where are my keybindings? And how do i bind new keys?
A: BT3 Keybindings will not be ported over either, you have to use the new KeyBound to re-bind your keys. You can access KeyBound by its slash command (/kb) or through the button in the BT4 config. Hover a button, press key → voila!

Q: CyCircled Support? I like my button skins? :(
A: No reason to cry! There is a sparkling new skinning addon/library out there! ButtonFacade is way easier to work with as a action-bar author, and its easier to write skins for it too! Alot of cyCircled Skins have already been ported to ButtonFacade, and more are on their way! After installing ButtonFacade just use its configuration to change the skin of the BT4 buttons (/bf)

Q: How do i disable the snapping of the bars?
A: Currently, you can temporarily override the snapping by holding down the Shift Key while moving your bars, or uncheck the option in the popup when your bars are unlocked.

    So, I'm using Bartender4 with SpartanUI, and two of my buttons on Bar 1 (button 9, 0, and -) have a different number now, and no longer work on the keyboard. It looks like they say 85, 83, and blank. How can I correct this? It's a pain, and the only thing I'm having an issue with...


    Got the fix from tht wow forum:

    "Type /bt in your chat and hit the enter/return key. This should bring up the Bartender 4 configuration menu.

    At the top is an option to set keybinds (might be called keybinding), click the option to go into the binding mode.

    Hover your mouse pointer over the button you want to set as 9 and press the escape key to clear anything that's already there, then press 9. You should get a brief message in the middle of your screen that confirms the new bind. Do the same with each of the other buttons and you should be good to go."

    got new bags with more slots. how do i change bags?

  • #4248
    eff the one bag bar

    i love this addon like everyone does - my only onem quam with it is.. I HATE THIS STUPID ONE BAG BAR.. and it always defaults to "ONE BAG" the whole idea of having different bags is the ability of swapping out bags full of certain types of items into ur bag slots in ur bank. depending on what ur doing -- and im always having to go into bartender options adn disable one bag bar on all my toons over and over and over again. Can someone please tell me how i can avoid doing this? because its REALLY ANNOYING.

    - while in game open your Reputation list ( Default hot key U ) click the faction you want to watch. A menu will pop out- check "show as experience bar" then if you have bartenders rep bar active it will reflect the faction you chose.

    Thank you very much.

  • #4243

    I'm having an issue where Im unable to click on my buttons. The tool tip is showing that it acknowledges that im hovering over the button, but when I go to click- nothing.. It will either click through the button to whats behind it or not respond at all. This is happening on all my characters, priest, rogue, death knight... not sure if it follows any others.

    I've tried differnt computer mice just incase it was a hardware issue on my end.

    -running Windows 7 64 bit if it matters

  • #4241

    For some reason, my XP bar does not work on startup, i have to go, set a reputation to be tracked, then turn off that same reputation before it will show up, after this, it works fine until i logout, i can track reputations normally, etc.

    Have had this error with a few other addons. Skill Helper was one of them. Turns out that the addon is trying to remake the bars during combat which is an illegal action. IDK what was done to fix it on the addon i mentioned, but he did a little searching and had a fix in less then 5 mins lol.


    Just giving you an FYI. I pops up about once every time i enter combat lol


  • #4239

    Today, as I leveled, I redid my bars for some added actions.  I went to eat dinner and came back and everything that I had set up is now gone. Its as if Bartender keeps losing its settings. Any fixes coming anytime soon.

    This is not the first time its happened.


  • #4238

    I have an odd problem. Last night (10 hours ago) Bartender4 worken perfectly fine. However this morning, there aren't any Bartender bars present anymore. It's just the regular Blizzard bars that show. I didn't change anything to Bartender or other addons and I know Bartender is loaded since I'm able to do /bartender and enter the menu. I've tried everything: load out of date addons, disabling/enabling Bartender bars, disabling/enabling Blizzard bars etc.

    Does anyone know what's going on? I'm reluctant to do a Bartender reinstall since I lose all my settings than.


    I just went into the Bartender4.lua file and found it was stripped of almost all it's data. I had te restore it with an old backup version I had on another computer. If you have the time, can you please investigate why this happens? Thanks.
